New Media Communications 2.0: A Great Good Place for the Theological Community
Tony Campolo represents for me an articulate and inspiring voice for the Sociologist/Theologian. I majored in Sociology at Murray State University, Murray, KY in 1978. I proceeded on to Southern Baptist Theological Seminary where I received my Mdiv. In 1981. IN the summer of 1980, while serving as Minister of Youth for Ninth Street Baptist Church in Cincinnati, OH, I experienced the insight, wit, and passionate speaking of Campolo for the first time at "Creation '80" in Lancaster County Pennsylvania.
From then on, I collected audio tapes, video, and books featuring Campolo and after exposing my Dad to Campolo, he became a big fan. Campolo has written prolifically, and I have all but one of the books he has written that I know of with the exception of the latest "Carpe Diem", which I have already read in a sense since I saw a film series in which he spoke on much of which is contained in the book. While Camplolo is an excellent writer, it is a special treat to hear him speak. Campolo is the exception to the usual where the book is usually better than the movie.
Campolo is widely accepted in a variety of circles, mainly due to his passionate study of the way Culture and Christianity affect one another. Campolo is Chair of the Sociology Department at eastern College, St. Davids , Penn.
Founder and President for the Evangelical Association for the Promotion of Education
Author of 13 books that sit in the place of honor on the "Top Shelf" where my most cherished writer's books sit.
